The prospect of death, not to mention hunger, hurt, helplessness and humiliation, stalked Holocaust survivor Leo Silberman for years during World War II. Fortunately for Silberman, his life eventually resembled the happy picture of a bright, spring day.

But for Silberman and so many other European Jews and other minorities, darkness crept in during the late 1930s.
